KfNTUCKY & FRESNO, CALIFORNIA • 86 PROOF Profit By Using The Globe-Gazette Want Adsl 423-4270 Musicals outstanding in race for Oscars this year By BOB THOMAS AP Movk.TV Wrlt«r HOLLYWOOD (AP) — The Oscar race is off and running to a musical lilt this year. December marks the end of .he nominations and the beginning of the heavy campaign- 'ng. All Oscar contenders must appear in a Los Angeles theater for at least a week before Dec. 31, and the Christmas season sees a number of hopefuls play- ng brief dates to qualify. They are bolstered by preslige-scek- ng ads which inform academy voters they can show their membership cards to gain free admittance. Thli yt*r most of thi impor- .ant contenders have appeared before Christmas and an unusual number arc musical, Why is this unusual? Because heavy dramas usually draw the academy's favor. At this point in the race, "My Fair Lady" seems the fairest of all the hopefuls. Its virtually unanimous praise makes it the film to heat in all departments. Two other musicals may well in contention for best picture award; "Mary Poppins" and 'The Unsinkable Molly Brown" scored high as crowd-plcnscrs. It wasn't a top year for dramas, but two which look prom- sing are "Night of the Iguana" and "Bcckel," both starring lichard Burton. "Dr. Strangc- ovc," in a class by itself, is another strong entry. Ofhre possibilities: "S • v e n 5;tys in May, 1'opkapi," "Fa- hcr Goose," "Chalk Garden" md "Zorba the Greek." The best actress race is led by he three musical ladies —Au- drey Hej/burn of "My Fair Lady," Julie Andrews of "Mary Poppins" and Debbie Reynolds of "Molly Brown." Others being mentioned for academy nominations: Geraldine Page for "Dear Heart"; Kim Stanley, "Seance on a Wet Afternoon"; Ava Gardner and Deborah Kerr, "Night of the Iguana"; Anne Bancroft, "The Pumpkin Easter"; Rita Tush- ingham, "The Girl with the Green Eyes"; Melina Mercouri, "Topkapi"; Deborah Kerr, Hayley Mills, "The Chalk Garden"; Bette Davis and Olivia De Havilland, "Hush Hush, Sweet Charlotte"; Olivia for "Lady in a Cage." As In last y*«r's nominations, the best actor competition has a definitely British accent. Leaders include Rex Harrison's Prof. Biggins of "My Fair Lady," Richard Burton for "Becket" or "Night of the Iguana," Peter OToolc for "Bcckct," Richard Attenborough for "Seance"; Cary Grant for "Father Goose," Peter Sellers for "Dr. Strange- love." American entries: Fredrich March, "Seven Days in May"; Anthony Quinn, "Zorba the Greek." Sellers' nomination could be a curiosity; he played three roles in the film and could conceivably be nominated in starring and .supporting categories. The supporting races are more difficult to predict. Here are some of those being mentioned: Supporting actress — Edith Evans, "The Chalk Garden"; Tippi Walker, Merri Spaeth, "The World of Henry Orient"; Ann Sothern, "Lady in a Cage"; Agnes Moorehcad, "Hush Hush, Sweet Charlotte"; Mildred Dunoock, "Behold a | Pale Horse"; Grayson Hall, Night of the Iguana."

Robinson, "The Out-! rage"; John Gielgud, "Becket"; Lee Tracy, "The Best Man"; Robert Morley, "Topkapi"; Melvyn Douglas, "The Americanization of Emily." ' ! The directors' class is led by George Cukor of "My Fair Lady" with contenders including Stanley Kubrick, "Dr. Strangelove"; John Huston, "Night of the Iguana"; Robert 1 Stevenson, "Mary Poppins";; Peter Glenville, "Becket"; Johnj Frankenheimer, "Seven Days in May"; Bryan Forbes, "Seance"; Chuck Walters, "Molly"; and others.
